圣托马斯大学(UST), 成立于1611年, is Asia’s oldest existing 大学 and is located in Manila, 菲律宾. 科大于2016年加入hjc888老品牌黄金城-QA准会员,并一直积极参与hjc888老品牌黄金城-QA活动. 2021, 大学已经完成了4项hjc888老品牌黄金城-QA课程评估,共有14项学习课程. 科大作为一个机构,也进行了hjc888老品牌黄金城-QA机构评估. 

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic leading to school closures, the 大学 of Santo Tomas is committed to implement a mode of instruction rooted in the principles of communion and encounter that promotes dialogue, and ensures accessibility and flexibility in learning. 认识到各种健康, 金融, and social concerns that beset both teachers and students, the 大学 acknowledged the need to strengthen communication channels and facilitate fluidity in instruction to provide every learner with the opportunity to continue learning despite the uncertain circumstances and varying limitations. 
The 大学 implemented Enriched Virtual Mode (EVM) of instruction beginning AY 2020-2021 through UST Cloud Campus powered by Blackboard. Published literature describes this blended learning model as having online instruction as the backbone of student learning but requires face-to-face learning sessions as determined by the teacher. 然而, 2020年AY - 2021, 菲律宾的检疫规定不允许面对面上课, as a measure to reduce the spread of COVID-19. To mitigate learning loss brought about by school closures, and to promote a positive learning experience among students, the 大学 engaged its academic staff in rigorous training on strategies to enrich the students’ learning experience. 

The enrichment strategies for EVM are four-fold, all directed towards contributing to the attainment of the SEAL of Thomasian Education and the Thomasian Graduate Attributes (ThoGAs): 

这些丰富的策略以教师之间的合作为中心, 与行业伙伴和校友, 与社区合作伙伴, 与外国合作机构合作——承认与他人学习的丰富机会, and maximizing technology in breaking the boundaries of space and distance. 

因此, Enriched Virtual Mode (EVM) of instruction in UST, 虽然目前有限的, if not totally devoid of face-to-face class experience, has been redefined as an enriched learning experience through collaborations that expose learners to real community concerns, 他们学科的新趋势, 和全球视角, 同时在家中安全学习. Our academic staff are at the forefront of this, with pedagogy-driven and technology-focused training sessions that help them expand their horizons and explore new strategies to maximize the students’ learning experience. Innovative approaches to teaching key competencies arise from rich discussions and co-creation of content with partner individuals and institutions, 这些融合在一起,为他们的学习者提供优质的托马斯教育.
